I would also like to thank the "Riff Raff" model club for their efforts with the show Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the availability of products and seeing the great work on the contest entries. So nice to have a show back in town. I too will look forward to next year's show.
Looking to replace a broken chassis for an AFX Super G Plus Indy car. A complete chassis would work but could also get by with just the bare chassis as that is what broke and all of the others parts are good. Could possibly purchase or trade. Thanks for the look.
OK, I said I might never do another one of these, but I caved. Picked up the old Monogram 1/32 Snap-Tite "Blue Max " Funny car kit. Love the run of real Blue Max FCs, and had to have the kit of this one. For those interested, you can see my post from my build of the Prudhomme Pepsi Challenger kit from the same run of 1/32s at the URL below. Figure I might add to what I did on the Prudhomme by working on the actual chassis itself a bit more.
I will jump in on this revived topic. As a child, the "Indy 500" was special in my family. I guess my father was the lead in that, but from 1970 until the late '80s we a child and then I as an adult never missed the race on television. Living in Indianapolis in 1970, we attended the race that year. We actually attended Time Trials once or twice and were down at the pits on one day. We were in the infield on turn four, me on my Father's shoulders much of the race, as I was six. I still have the memorabilia from that day, including a set of four art prints of Unser, Andretti, Donohue, and Foyt I believe. I have some snapshots much like yours "mrIndy77", and everything associated with that day is special. Like many, after the "split" it just didn't seem the same to me, and I stopped following it as religiously. I still hope to make the pilgrimage back to Indy someday, to experience it again even its current form, and visit museum especially. In the meantime, I will try to get to work on my resin 1970 Colt Unser Johnny Lightning Special 1/25 kit, Under's winner from that year.
Wow, they both look great, but I am absolutely lovin' that Glidden car. Just bought that new kit, didn't want to build the old one. Thanks for showing, just trying to get a couple 1/64 slots done for now, but that big ones are intriguing.
